News and Rumors 1/24/11 - 1/30/11

Hi guys!!  It's been a rough few days here.  I had a terrible case of food poisoning (the reason I didn't get out a blog post last week) and I'm just now finally feeling more normal. 

I also have a few announcements.  First, for those who don't know...I'm also a blogger for the new WDW Fan Zone.  Make sure to go check it out!  It's a great new site that you'll need to put in your Google Reader!  I love it! 

In addition, in the past month, I've also become a co-editor for the e-newsletter Magically Speaking.  If you aren't subscribed to it...you need to be.  The newsletter offers up articles, news, and tips for not only WDW, but also Disneyland and the Disney Cruise Line! 

So, as you can see....I'm a busy little bee lately!!! 

But I'm still chugging along here too...so you won't miss out on seeing posts here!  (Unless I get another massive case of food poisoning again...trust me...no fun!) 

And now, on with the show!
